The Stage Coach Staff happily gives you these souvenirs of the year's activities. In turn we hope that i/oii will remember the thought behind these activities. Above all, we want this annual to repre- sent more than a brief journey through the school year; we want it to symbolize the lifelong spirit which St. Mary's imparts. Dedicated to Miss Mabel Marcaret Morrisox who, because of her understanding, sympathy, and interest in the prob- lems and activities of us all, has won the love and appreciation of the student body. '56 Progress of the Old Stagecoach A Doggeral in Modified Spenserian Stanza for the Editors—, Smiley and Nancy From September to Thanksgiving WE OILED UP THE WHEELS AND MOUNTED ALOFT. WE LARRUPED THE HOSSES THROUGH MUD SORT 'A SOFT. From Thanksgiving to Christinas THEN WHEELS HIT THE CONCRETE AND SANG LIKE TARNATION; AND ROLLED US ALONG SMACK INTO VACATION. WE BRUSHED OFF THE E'S, AND GRABBED AT THE A'S, AND HEADED THE CHARIOT FOR COMMENCEMENT DAYS. From Easter to June WITH THE GOAL WELL IN SIGHT WE RACED WITH THE WIND, AND HOWLED TO EACH OTHER, "HOLD ON. HERE'S THE END." VACATION THEN OVER, WE TIGHTENED EACH HUB, AND ROLLED US AWAY TO OUR OLD COUNTRY CLUB. From Christmas to Easter AND ROLLED ON AGAIN AMID LAUGHTER AND SQUEALS 'TIL BUMPS OF EXAMS THREW IS UNDER THE WHEELS. After the handkerchief's dropped NOW THE OLD EQUIPAGE IS DRAWN UP TO THE DOOR. BOABD HER. GET IN. THERE'S FUN HERE GALORE. FORGET ALL THE WORK; REMEMBER THE FUN. HOLD TIGHT TO THE SPIRIT; YOU'VE A RACE YET TO RUN. ALL YE SAINTS AND YE SINNERS, IS EVERYONE HERE? WE'LL HEAD TO THE FUTURE WITH NARRY A FEAR. Bv an unknown admirer of the class of '56 RICHARD G. STONE President A.B., Western Maryland College; Ph.D., The John;) Hopkins University; L.H.I).. Western Maryland College. St. Mary's, 1946 — . A perennial passenger on the Stage Coach, Dr. Stone is truly a symbol of St. Mary's. His sincerity and stability have gained our earnest respect. His wisdom and ability have helped guide both school and students. Our New Dean EDITH ANNE RICHARDSON Dca ii. This year we welcomed aboard the Stage Coach a lady who has in a short year become a mean- ingful part of the life at St. Mary's. She has already won our sincere affection through her sweetness, her generosity, and her understanding. Februi 10, 1956. Dear Class of 1956: You have asked me to write a letter for your Stage Coach and I am happy to take this opportunity to thank you for all your kindnesses of the past year. It was inevitably a time of mutual adjustments as A'ou grew accustomed to me and I gradually became familiar with your policies and traditions. You have continually assisted me in so many ways and have shown such unusual understanding for the stranger within your gates, that I feel confident that each member of the Class of 1956 will carry with her from St. Mary's this ability to welcome strangers. To me it is a St. Mary's tradition well-worthy of perpetuation. My best wishes for all the days ahead. Loyally yours, Edith A. Richardson. ISRAEL HARDING HUGHES Chaplain No matter where we go from here, we will never forget the kindly Chaplain who has traveled with us on our journey through St. Mary's. He has given us continuous inspiration and cheer through the goodness of his words and the warmth of his personality.
